Just got about 60 tasks. Btw is the maximum amount of tasks that can be cached 200?

Hi guys,

Looks like it was just too many retries in a short period of time after I aborted a load of tasks while configuring the optimised apps.
It worked as soon as I turned on my computer when I got home.

As Bruce suggested I've downgraded to SoG_r3557. Looks like it's averaging about 6.5 minutes for each task, with two running in parallel so effectively 3.25 minutes. Is this about what would be expected with a 2080?
It seems like the tasks chew tons of CPU, is that normal?
Getting some interface lag just with it running in the background.

I'm getting this error:
11/11/2018 22:29:05 | SETI@home | Message from server: Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of SETI@home v8.

Can't figure out what I have setup wrong in the app_info file.
Contents is below. Any idea?

OK, so I did a little research on dual channel RAM and it seems that one way to get a viable 24 GB solution would be:

2 of these: (2 x 8 GB)
https://playit.de/crucial-ballistix-sport-lt-udimm-8gb-ddr4-2400-cl16.html

and this dual channel kit (2 x 4 GB):
https://www.cyberport.at/form/?DEEP=2410-16U&APID=294&STOREID=7

If installed correctly (12 GB in one channel and 12 GB in the other), this should give full speed across all of the 24 GB, right?

The math would work out as 16 Gb in one channel and 8Gb in the other channel. Still it is never a good idea to mix memory capacities. All the same type in either one channel, dual channel or quad channel. Since Kaby Lake is dual channel only, either go with two sticks or 4 sticks of the same memory density. That means 2 X 16 GB sticks or 4 x 8 GB sitcks for 32 GB total. Or just go for a total of 16GB. I have never been able to figure out just why anyone needs 32 GB of memory unless it is a server class machine and that would be on the low end of memory. I have no familiarity with any typical desktop or productivity applications that use that much memory. BOINC normally uses less than 2 GB of memory. I believe the recommended minimum for Windows is 4 GB and at least 8 GB preferred. 16 GB seems to be the common capacity for Windows of any modern flavor.


If he puts a 4Gb and 8GB stick in each channel there's no problem here. 12GB in each channel. I've seen people make the claim that it's not a good idea to mix different sticks in the same channel but I've never seen any evidence that this causes problems. Also even if he did it "wrong" and put the two 8GB sticks in the first channel slots and the two 4GB sticks in the second channel slot it would operate in flex mode and he would get dual channel for the first 8GB in each channel and then single channel speed for the final 8GB in the first channel.

Sorry to highjack this thread again just one more question. For the SoG tasks should I be running 2 tasks for my GPU, or is 1 ok to keep it fully occupied? It seems to run very different to the "old" CUDA optimised binaries so I am wondering if the optimal settings are also different.

Hi all,

I installed SoG version 3584 and have it running but the CPU utilisation seems really high with these tasks.
I'm currently running two at the same time on a GTX 770 and often they both chew up a CPU core each:


Is this normal?

CUDA device: GeForce GTS 250 (driver version 19107, compute capability 1.1, 512MB, est. 84GFLOPS) 


It's interesting that the 512MB version has the same estimated speed as the 1024MB GTS 250...


The amount of RAM doesn't affect the raw computational ability of the cards. In a situation where the task required more than 512MB of memory, the 1GB card would have a performance advantage as it could keep everything in its own RAM instead of having to page in and out of main memory.
